Green Hills Wins Innovation of the Year Award for TimeMachine Debugger

4/12/2004 - Green Hills Software, Inc., the market leader in embedded software development tools and royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), announced that its TimeMachine debugger was selected as the ‘EDN 2003 Software Innovation of the Year’ by the editors and readers of EDN Magazine. This award program honors outstanding electronic products ranging from integrated circuits to test equipment.

“The 14th Annual EDN Innovation Awards is proud to recognize innovations across the entire gamut of technologies that are key to creating products that everyone can enjoy and use. We applaud the engineering profession for creating advancements that put technology to work for people in their everyday lives,” said Maury Wright, editor-in-chief of EDN Magazine.

“It is a true honor to have the TimeMachine debugger selected as the best software technology by the EDN editorial staff and engineering community,” said David Kleidermacher, vice president of engineering at Green Hills Software. “Developers of embedded and real-time software often struggle with intermittent bugs that are difficult to identify. In fact, products are often shipped with known bugs that cannot be fixed due to their transience. Our TimeMachine debugger makes it easy to eliminate the most insidious bugs, enabling developers to achieve total reliability while significantly reducing their development time.”

Green Hills Software’s TimeMachine debugger enables developers for the first time to step and run applications in reverse—at the C, C++, and Ada source-code level—and to inspect past variable and register values. This allows developers to backtrack from the manifestation of an application error to easily identify its root cause. The TimeMachine debugger operates nonintrusively by working with trace data captured in real-time by Green Hills Software’s SuperTrace probe. The probe has a one gigabyte trace memory that can capture up to two billion processor cycles. The TimeMachine debugger also works with Green Hills Software’s instruction set and RTOS simulators.

Products and technologies qualifying for a 2003 EDN Innovation award must have been introduced and commercially marketed from January 1, 2003 through December 31, 2003.
